Our Charities for 2014

In November, we announced the names of the two charities that the group will support over the next 12 months.
The selection of the company’s new charities coincides with the completion of a total of £28,000 having been raised for the Teenage Cancer Trust with whom we have enjoyed a successful partnership over the past three years.

Following a poll of all 85 senior staff at the company’s annual conference, Macmillan Cancer Support and The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust have been chosen.

Macmillan Cancer Support is dedicated to helping people with cancer and their families, making sure they receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust provides a haven for Elephant and Rhino orphans, and work hard towards antiā€poaching, preservation of environments and conservation of all African Wildlife.

MAKING IT REAL where your money goes:

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

The David Sheldrick Wildlife TrustAfter her mother was killed by poachers, Quanza the elephant would not have survived without the protection of her elephant family. Confused and frightened, Quanza was found alone next to her dead family. Taken to our Nairobi Nursery in a rescue plane, Quanza is now being cared for amongst our keepers and elephant family.

- £15 will ensure the younger orphan elephants stay warm with a blanket.
- £65 will fund a wildlife show to children living on the border of the National Parks, teaching wildlife conservation.
- £150 will provide our teams with vital camera traps to photo-capture shy wildlife and help monitor populations.

Macmillan Cancer Support

Macmillan Cancer SupportFrom its early beginnings, founded in 1911 by Douglas Macmillan, Macmillan Cancer Support has grown to become the largest cancer care and support charity in the UK. The aims of the trust are to support hose who are suffering from cancer and other terminal diseases where no cure is expected, and to provide help and support for family members.
‘I felt like I was falling from a great height but Pat, my Macmillan nurse, was there to catch me.’
After Mario was diagnosed with cancer, he felt like everything was ripped away from him. But Pat made sure he didn’t face cancer alone and now Mario volunteers alongside her at his local Macmillan information and support centre.

The Difference your fundraising will make:
- 1 hour of a Macmillan Nurse £27
- 1 Day of a Macmillan Nurse £203
- 1 month of a Macmillan Nurse £4,393
- 1 year of a Macmillan Nurse £52,720

Commenting, Jeremy Waud, Managing Director at Incentive FM Group said: “These are both worthwhile charities in totally different ways and we have a number of fundraising activities planned already both at local and national level. The aim is to try and raise £1,000 a month for each charity which will pay for a Macmillan Clinical Nurse for a week and covers the annual cost to care for two baby elephant orphans. I know we will be supported in this more ambitious fundraising challenge as always by our clients, suppliers and sector media.”
